The Train Game is a magazine story.
Stephen and Bridget sadly watch the rain beating against the window of their grandparents' house. The children decided to see who could draw the best picture of Thomas. Bridget drew Thomas' face and held it in front of her own. She showed it to Lady Hatt who helps her cut it out and turn it into a proper mask.
That afternoon, Lady Hatt had to go out; she had promised the vicar that she would help out at the children's playgroup. She took Bridget and Stephen along too. The children also took a bag of their toys and Bridget took the Thomas mask. At the main station, Thomas is surprised to see Bridget's mask. The tank engine takes them to the church hall where the vicar is waiting to greet them.
Later, the children are very impressed with Bridget's mask and all want a turn at wearing it. Lady Hatt thought carefully before asking the children to form a line behind Bridget in her mask. The children were puzzled but they obeyed. The vicar then blew a whistle and Lady Hatt tells Bridget to walk around the hall with the other children following her. They were pretending to be Thomas and his trucks. They played the game until it was time to go home.
